Word find/replace graphics

5 posts in this topic

Why doesn't this work?  If I use ^g in a macro it works and when I use ^p (to replace a paragraph) it works?

#include <Word.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Global $oWord = _Word_Create(False)

$processing = @MyDocumentsDir & '\AutoIt_code\getter\processing\'

$oDoc = _Word_DocOpen($oWord, $processing & "1200.doc", Default, Default, False)
_Word_DocFindReplace($oDoc, "^g", "image removed", $WdReplaceAll)
If @error <> 0 Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Word UDF: _Word_DocFindReplace Example", _
        "Error replacing text in the document." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Word UDF: _Word_DocFindReplace Example", "Paragraph control character successfully replaced.")
_Word_DocClose($oDoc, $WdSaveChanges)
_Word_Quit($oDoc)

Then we need more information:

Which AutoIt version?

Which Office version?

Sorry water - I've just deleted my reply because I created a fresh doc file with an image in it and it worked - just as you said it would.  It seems the files that I'm working on have something different about the images which causes the problem.  Once again thanks for your valuable help.  So in the end this works for removing all normal images from a file:

$oDoc = _Word_DocOpen($oWord, "filepath/filename.doc", Default, Default, False)
_Word_DocFindReplace($oDoc, "^g", "", $WdReplaceAll, 0, False, False, False)
_Word_DocClose($oDoc, $WdSaveChanges)
_Word_Quit($oDoc)
